Public Affairs Section Supports IVP Alumnus “Green Library” Project

Used plastic bottles were stacked to serve as walls of the ‘green’ library”

Parents of the barrio work together to build their children’s library for free

  Baguio City- On December 18, 2012, Alumni Coordinator visited the construction of a simple library at the Springhills Elementary School in Apugan, Loakan, Baguio City.  The library is a project of International Visitor Program (IVP) alumnus and broadcast journalist Dhobie De Guzman in partnership with the University of Cordilleras and the ABS-CBN News Network in Northern Luzon.  The 300 elementary students of the school will soon enjoy reading materials from the U.S. Embassy’s Regional English Language Office’s “Books for Barrios” program.  The alumnus aims to provide each of the 128 barrios of Baguio City small corners where children can read and learn about the conservation of the environment.
